    My mom had one of these sewing machines when I was younger. She uses to make me and my siblings clothes.

    kiesh,

    This machine is a Riccar made machine badged as a Free. Probably late 50s to 60s.
    It parks to the left on SS and uses cams.

    Since it was your grand moms I'd take it in a heart beat. All the better since you get the cams and accessories. But do make sure the slide plate and bobbin case is there. Why these things are removed I have no idea.

    I'd take that machine now and learn on it. It's a good machine, that just needs loving and care.
